The Miracle at New Orleans

Tuesday, June 22nd | 2 pm ET
Webinar Event

In late December of 1814, British ships and soldiers sailed to New Orleans in an attempt to break through the American fortifications guarding the city. Despite overwhelming numbers, the British suffered a catastrophic loss, losing over 2,000 men while the Americans lost only a few hundred men. This was the final battle of the War of 1812.

What made the Battle of New Orleans such a victory for the American forces? Why was it called "the miracle of New Orleans?" And what effects did the battle have on American international policy after the close of the war?

Join us on June 22nd at 2 pm to find out.

This event will feature Donald Hickey, a professor of history at Wayne State College; Brian Kilmeade, author of Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America's Destiny and co-host of Fox & Friends; and Joseph F. Stoltz, Director of the George Washington Leadership Institute at Mount Vernon and author of A Bloodless Victory.
